Governor Eric Holcomb has used the week of Thanksgiving to issue pardons.
He’s pardoned six people after recommendations from the Indiana Parole Board. Of those six, two had already had records expunged under Indiana’s Second Chance Act. Three others served out their sentences and made restitution.
The six pardoned by Governor Holcomb are:
- Jamie Druelinger, convicted in 1996 on 2 counts of felony battery & 1 count misdemeanor criminal mischief
- Vincent Gartin, convicted of felony attempted fraud in 1992 and 3 counts of felony robbery in 1998
